Artful Dodge Discussion

Nice deck, but I would change some things;
- change Cancel for Mana Leak, it's a cheaper casting cost and does virtually the same.
- Use a Kiln Fiend. You're going to love it in this deck, trust me. If you like that kind of structure, then check out the Nivix Cyclops. If you want to run this kind of deck, use an Artful Dodge for ensuring victory.
- consider using Gutshot and Gitaxian Probe. Both two commons that are must-have in Izzet pauper that uses instants.
- Use a Delver of Secrets Flip, another common that loves to be in a spell-slinger deck.
- Ponder is also a considerable filter in your deck, same applies for Faithless Looting

I could not remember the name of the terrain when I created the deck here. Thank you Anakronism. Mizzium Skin was originally from the side deck, but I changed the card Titan's Strength because cards like Lightning Bolt, Vapor Snag, Dead Weight, Vendetta and others can ruin my chance to win in Turn 3 with Immolating Souleater / Kiln Fiend + Artful Dodge / Slip Through Space +Assault Strobe->Assault Strobe + Artful Dodge + Mizzium Skin = Kiln Fiend 10/2 with doublestrike, unblockable and hexproof. I know there are cards that can stop me, but from what I saw of the decks I'm going to face, that seemed to me a better choice.

Finally catching up on comments ...
oblivion234 and ArmyJM07,
Yep. I've been thinking about making a Temur build ever since this post.
Red also has Artifact hate. No more Smash to Smithereens of course, but IMO Destructive Tampering and Release the Gremlins are quite good, and Gremlin Infestation, Structural Distortion, and Ruinous Gremlin have their uses.
Sounds like a fun deck!
Sorry but neither Aqueous Form nor Artful Dodge are legal in Standard. Plus they have the same problems Slip Through Space does, from this post.
Thanks for the kudos. In actual testing (with 4x Crackdown Construct, 3x Key to the City, and 2x Trail of Evidence), I've seen Inventors' Fair in about 70% of my games, and it's triggered in about 30% of those. That's a far cry from "never" :-D
Less than 26 Lands might work, but I started there (based on this list) and have been happy with it so far.
As an aside, at some point I'm going to test a Clue-heavy build, using Mechanized Production (#Protect_Combo_Pieces #Alt_Wincon) and Tamiyo's Journal (#Find_Combo_Pieces). If I do that, I would likely increase the Investigate effects too (e.g., with Erdwal Illuminator and Confirm Suspicions)
Yeah, that could be fun. I figure half the Internet is already trying to break Saheeli and Guardian though, so I'm gonna stick to Crackdown Construct for now. For ideas on what other people are doing, I recommend checking out the Recent Decks section of the Crackdown Construct page.

sorry for spamming you with comments but I figured out exactly what I would do replace Chasm Skulker with 2 copies of my favorite card Future Sight which basically allows for infinite draws if you just play off of the top of your deck and 2 Artful Dodge. If you want to keep creatures and keep it aggressive you could run an illusion creature Phantasmal Image to copy Cloudfin Raptor.

2x Cathedral of War (free pump, no more than 2 in a multi colored deck)
Wild Defiance will save you against burn.

The other thing I was going to mention: it's difficult to get infect DMG through w/o trample. If you don't like the Augur then you'll most likely need Rancor and and at least another source of trample. This is just my experience with playing Infect. If you don't like trample there is always Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space, Vapor Snag or even Apostle's Blessing; but you will need some form of evasion.
Lotus Petal is prolly out of budget however greatly increases the chance of a T2 Victory.

2x Tranquil Thicket and 2-4x Lotus Petal. Thornwood Falls slows you down but I see why its in there. Count the Petals as lands and cut a few basics. 14 total lands including the Thickets, plus 4 Petals is good. The cmc is so low u can run light on lands. 18 total mana sources plus you have the 2 for 1 duals. Plenty.
Keep the Ichorclaw Myr in. That's a staple.
Llanowar Augur is another cheap trample card.
